The thefts escalated in early August with the theft of two luxury SUV vehicles.

These purchases led detectives to the Gravesend section of Brooklyn and during a week-long investigation both stolen vehicles were recovered intact.

Local author, researcher, and scuba diver Adam Grohman, who has searched for submarines, rum runners, shipwrecks, and other interesting aspects of our local maritime history, has recently completed his research into President Theodore Roosevelt’s historic plunge beneath the waters of Oyster Bay aboard the Plunger submarine in August of 1905. “Theodore Roosevelt,” Grohman commented, “was a fascinating American. He exemplified the ‘can do’ spirit and his support of the nation’s naval forces is sometimes overshadowed by his other myriad accomplishments. Presidential Plunge – Theodore Roosevelt, the Plunger Submarine and the United States Navy highlights his efforts and focuses in on this continuously important aspect of Roosevelt’s legacy.”
